>This is an invitation to subscribe to "China Labor News Translations"
>- a free, bi-monthly collection of English translations of
>Chinese-language reports, commentaries and blogs on labor issues
>published in China. These materials will be chosen from amongst the
>most informative and significant mainland Chinese media reports,
>academic publications, activist writings, internet discussions and so
>Currently, most English material on Chinese labor is written by
>former Chinese labor activists now residing outside China, the foreign
>media,or foreign scholars, NGOs, trade unions and the like, each from
> their
>own specific perspectives. It is our hope that this bi-monthly
>mail-out will give English language readers access to some
>perspectives from inside  China. We hope these few monthly articles
>can help build a more  nuanced understanding of Chinese labor issues
>and how they are being conceptualised, understood and discussed in
>Chinese public forums. There is a wealth of information, analyses and
>research that is not currently available to non-Chinese readers.
>These translations can at least make a small portion of that accessible
>to the outside world.
>Each mail-out will be accompanied by an introduction, explaining the
>background and significance of the selected articles.
>This project was initiated by Anita Chan, an academic researcher and
>labor rights advocate at the Australian National University (see
>Anita's web site at
>http://rspas.anu.edu.au/people/personal/chana_ccc.php). The project
>will be run by a small group of volunteer researchers, labor
>and translators. It is our aim to better inform English-speaking
>readers about the problems and the possibilities facing workers in
>China, and to facilitate constructive discussion and co-operation
>around these issues.
